Diagnostic innovation upgrade for Cirrus HD-OCT


Zeiss has released a significant upgrade to the Cirrus HD-OCT. It now offers ChamberView, a 15.5 mm wide and 5.8 mm deep scan that encompasses the entire anterior segment. Dedicated high-resolution 9 mm corneal scans allow the assessment of corneal pathology and the display of colour-coded pachymetry maps. For glaucoma applications, the new HD Angle scan gives clinicians the ability to assess and measure the iridocorneal angle.

Each of these new anterior segment scans is achieved by using cleverly designed magnetic external lenses.

The upgrade also offers a suite of Smart HD scans, including an HD 21 Line scan, HD Cross, HD Radial and a 100x oversampled Smart HD 1 Line scan. These scans use the Zeiss FoveaFinder, ensuring that you scan through the fovea even without correct patient fixation.

The new software offers a series of pre-set en face scan displays as well as PanoMap, a new display that encompasses both the macula and optic nerve head for a summary of retinal nerve fibre layer, optic nerve head and ganglion cell analysis on one screen.

Zeiss has two new developments in fundus cameras. The Visucam 200 fundus camera now offers fundus autofluorescence, which has become important in assessing the health of the retinal pigment epithelium, and assessing optic nerve head drusen, plaquenil toxicity and choroidal melanomas.

The company has also released the Visuscout 100, a non-mydriatic, hand-held fundus camera packed into a small, rugged carry case. Featuring autofocus and nine internal fixation LEDs, the camera takes 40-degree colour and red-free images that can be transferred to a PC or mobile device via Wi-Fi. It comes with a charging holster, and an optional slitlamp adaptor is available.

Zeiss is excited to announce the release of the Humphrey Field Analyser 3 (HFA 3). The HFA3 is now faster and easier to use with a fresh new SmartTouch interface and the introduction of the intriguing ‘Liquid Trial Lens’ technology, which reduces patient set-up time by loading refractive correction from the previous scan. Additionally, the operator can retrospectively review images of the patient’s eye that were taken during each stimulus presentation using the new RelEYE monitor. Kinetic perimetry has also been vastly improved.
